Love Connection: Romance in the Land of the Rising Sun
Love Connection: Romance in the Land of the Rising Sun is a "romantic adventure" that spans three continents, and is entirely unlike any love story you’ve ever read.
And it is based on real events!
The novel is set in contemporary Japan and is the story of Kumiko and Takashi, two 50-something individuals grieving the loss of their spouses. We follow their romantic quests as they travel separately to Africa -- Uganda, Kenya, Nigeria, and other exotic countries. They finally meet back in Japan under most unusual and shocking circumstances.
This totally unique tale is not a romance novel in the traditional sense. It’s about finding and redefining self, rediscovering relationships, revitalizing life, and then in sharp contrast, the ruthlessness and callous manipulation by certain foreign criminal elements, preying on the innocent, trusting nature of Japanese people.
